I thought I would share a little more about our decorations and food for our Halloween party. Our menu for the party was:
Fresh Apple Cider
Tomato Basil Soup
Broccoli Cheddar Soup
French Bread for dipping
Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes
And of course, plenty of candy corn.
For decorations I had several mini pumpkins and for a table runner I used a scrap of fabric I had intended for a project, but didn't end up using.
For the broccoli cheddar soup, I found the recipe on Eighteen25. This soup was pretty quick to make and very tasty. The tomato basil soup recipe was found on allrecipes. I doubled the recipe and really enjoyed making the soup - it made the kitchen smell sooo good!
The apple cider recipe was found at Food.com. Now this took a loooong time to make. You have to boil the apples for one hour and then let them simmer for 2, but the end product is so worth it. We all really enjoyed the cider.
As for the living room, I added a few touches there as well. I mimicked the banner I had made for the dining room and placed another one on the bookshelves as well as adding some mini pumpkins.
And of course I put my spider web picture back up for the party.
I decorated this little bookshelf too a bit although I suppose it's more fall-like than Halloween-like. =)
